Arsonists have been warned that their actions can cost lives.

In Rotherham fires were started on Bay Tree Avenue, Flanderwell and Fenton Road, Kimberworth Park, last week.

South Yorkshire Fire Service’s Head of Community Safety, Kevin Ronan, said: “Starting fires is reckless and costs lives, as even small fires like bin and rubbish fires can quickly spread.

“Arson attacks on homes have resulted in murder convictions.”
